Words cannot express my gratitude to Marc & his team. I had the most amazing time diving in Malta & am frantically trying to save up for another trip later this summer.
Being a fairly indecisive person, I booked time off work towards the end of June, not knowing exactly where I wanted to go/ what to do. A quick search on Tripadvisor returned some glowing reviews of the Scubanauts dive school & I immediately contacted Marc to see which courses he could recommend. His email responses were very quick & informative, and within 2 days of making contact with him, I was booked on the Open Water Dive course starting the following week.
I was picked up from my hotel daily at 8am (on the dot - they were never late!), and returned to the hotel at the end of each day. The 'door to door' service was certainly a great help for someone completely new to the Maltese island.
I was lucky enough to complete my 3 day course on my own with Marc, although I hear their group sizes tend to be kept small anyway, to a maximum of 4 or 5 divers per instructor. This means a greater level of customer service - other dive schools are known to be a bit greedy & cram as many people into a group as possible to make the most amount of money.
Marc was terrific (and Rob too, who carried out my evaluation dives). His instructions were very clear & I never once felt 'out of my depth' or struggling to keep up. I took to the water pretty quickly and, along with his help, we were catching octopus by the end of Day 1!! The highlight though was travelling to another dive site (Cirkewwa) on the last day & landing on a shipwreck!!
This is undoubtedly the best activity I've undertaken while on holiday. My only gripe is that Tripadvisor won't allow me to allocate more than 5 stars :)
